MIDIbox VGM Player

1 post in this topic

The first official release of MIDIbox VGM Player is available now! This is a small build which allows you to play VGM files on one or more MBHP_Genesis modules with a minimal control surface. In my case I just took my mostly-complete MIDIbox Quad Genesis and traded the massive front panel for a tiny one with 6 buttons and an encoder:

Firmware: http://svnmios.midibox.org/listing.php?repname=svn.mios32&path=%2Ftrunk%2Fapps%2Fsynthesizers%2Fmidibox_vgmplayer%2F

It's not a particularly hard project, and most of the information someone will need (someone who is familiar with MIDIbox in general) will be found at the MBHP_Genesis module page, http://wiki.midibox.org/doku.php?id=mbhp_genesis, which is very detailed. So the documentation for the project itself isn't that extensive right now--but I'm looking for feedback about this. Meaning, post here if you get stuck with something, and I'll answer your question and add the information to the wiki.

More features will be added over time, as I develop the VGM driver even further for use with MIDIbox Quad Genesis. Planned features include: autodetection of presence and number of MBHP_Genesis boards, autodetection of actual chip clock speeds and obeying VGM file clock speeds to get frequency commands right in all cases, realtime tempo and pitch controls.
